There are two small museums next to each with a huge airplane from the war in between. The museums have lots of authentic things from the war--- uniforms, guns, even love letters and cards from soldiers to their sweethearts. It's a real tribute to France,...More

A fascinating look at post-war Berlin, a city divided by four powers, and the stage for the Cold War to play out. Small but chock full of information and memorabilia of a time now past.

This museum is housed in a former theater and in a close building and will not be one of the first choices among museums during your trip in Berlin. It is definitely a museum that will attract only tourists who have already visited more important...More
